Hackers are exploiting an unpatched flaw in Adobe Flash. Uninstall or disable it until Adobe can produce a patch.


Adobe warned on Thursday that attackers are exploiting a previously unknown security hole in its Flash Player software to break into Microsoft Windows computers. Adobe said it plans to issue a fix for the flaw in the next few days, but now might be a good time to check your exposure to this still-ubiquitous program and harden your defenses.

Full story and details here.

WHY???

Why is Adobe Flash still allowed to exist? :cry:

It's 2018 Oh Please!, HTML5 has been around for nearly four years :(

It's because IDIOTS like the BBC keep publishing videos in Flash Format. It is the only site on the internet where I need to re-enable flash.
